Description of the destination Gorj

Gorj County is located in the south-west of Romania, on the middle course of the river Jiu, occupying an area of 5602 km², covering the Meridional Carpathians, Subcarpathian Depression of Oltenia and the Getic Piedmont Hills. Because Gorj County covers an area with altitudes from 90 to 2519 m, the climate data differs greatly from one area to another. In terms of natural vegetation, most of Gorj County is included in the forest area which is divided into dominant species: Quercineae forests, the sub – area of the beech and the sub – area of conifers. In the highest areas, at over 1,800 m altitude there are the alpine forests. The county is characterized by varied terrain, disposed in plateaus, with altitudes that frequently exceed 2000 m (Parang Mountains), the maximum altitude being 2519 m in Parangul Mare Peak. On the area of the county we find traces of Quaternary glacial age (circuses, glacial lakes, moraines), the Jiu river that collects the waters of several tributaries (Sadu, Tismana, Jiltu, Motru, Gilort, Amaradia), many natural lakes (Calcescu, Slaveiu, Mija) and anthropogenic lakes (Cearu, Cerna, Motru). The seat of the county is represented by the city of Targu Jiu; other important towns of Gorj County are: Motru, Novaci, Rovinari, Targu Carbunesti, Tismana, Turceni and Ticleni; the county also has 61 villages.
